Re: Remora Holsters

I just picked up the Remora holster for my 3" Kimber 1911 (Lil Kim). So far, I've worn it in the house only with sweat pants and drawstring shorts. And I've worn it on the treadmill. HOWEVER ... after 3 or so months, I still don't have the cojones (a bit of Spanish lingo thrown in) to actually carry...

Re: Single Mag Holder - Cell Phone Style Case

I just brought a DeSantis single mag holster. They also make double mag holders.

Re: left handed buyer of fn 5X7

I'm a lefty as well. It's real easy to switch out the mag release. I put my 5.7 in a Galco holster. But, if I'm not mistaken, you can't get a production leather holster for a 5.7 WITH a light. For that you'll need to go the custom route, or a Kydex like the Blackhawk.

FNP vs. FNX

OK, I admit it, I don't know the difference between the FNP and the FNX series of guns.

Can anybody explain the differences to me?

Re: FsN Mag Pouch

I just got a single mag pouch from DeSantis. They offer both the single mag pouch and the double mag pouch in either black or tan leather. The single mag pouch is angled, so you order a left or right depending on which hand you shoot with. I'm a left handed shooter, so I ordered a left handed pouch ...

Re: Use Of 5.7 Pistol For Concealed Carry Gun

If the 5.7 is so bad, how come it's banned at so many ranges because it causes so much damage to the steel backstops ??

Re: Boneheads - Atlanta area

My gun club on Long Island has also banned the FiveseveN for the indoor pistol range. But they've also banned Magnum calibers including the .22Rim/Mag. They claim the fast bullets severely damage the backstops.

I'm quite sure that all of us with aging eyes thank you. That little booklet that came with the gun sure wasn't designed for us elders.

Anyone have more than one ??

So, I've had my FiveseveN for less than a month and I'm already thinking about getting a second and adding a red-dot sight system.

Anyone mount a holo or red-dot on a FiveseveN yet ?? Which mount ?? and why ??

Which sight system did you choose ?? And why ??

Re: Can the FiveseveN platform merge into other calibers ?

Having an FN 7.62 sitting next to my 5.7 might just be the solution to a non-existent problem. But, so many guns/calibers are just that. The 7.62 is a little spitfire that garners absolutely no respect from those who know little to nothing about it. Doesn't that kinda remind you of the 5.7 ?? I just...

Re: Can the FiveseveN platform merge into other calibers ?

What is the interest with 7.62x25 besides really cheap practice ammo? I've just come to believe it's an awsome caliber. it's got great balistics. But, if a new gun were to be manufactured for the caliber, I'm quite certain that new ammo would enter the marketplace as well. I have no interest in sho...

Re: Can the FiveseveN platform merge into other calibers ?

My point was that I love the gun itself, as much as the ammo platform. Just as I do my Sig P220's and my Kimber 1911's. And I think the old Tokarev caliber is also sweet. I'd like to see a modern gun chambered for the 7.62X25 Tokarev round. In the past, I thought the round might find a nice home in ...

Can the FiveseveN platform merge into other calibers ?

The more I shoot my FiveseveN, the more I like the platform. I'm actually surprised no one else places the safety lever in such a neat place as FN. But, how about different calibers ?? I'd love to see a modern gun chambered for the 7.62X25 round ... the Tokarev round. Anyone else ?? Or am I alone on...

Re: What should I get? Xd9 or Walther P99

It depends on the rest of the guns in your safe. The biggest detractor to the Walther is that the mag release is on the trigger guard rather than on the side of the frame like most guns.

In a SHTF scenario that could prove disasterous.

New here and a question ...

Hi, I just picked up my first FN pistol, the Five-seveN. Being a lefty, I'd like to reverse the mag release. It looks like a simple process of removing a spring, turning around the release, and reinstalling the spring. All in tight little cramped quarters made for someone with smaller digits and bet...
